Orion



"I am a Trickster God..."
- Bill Hicks


"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.



Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.



I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. 


All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. 

Time to die."



"Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south."
 (Job 9:9 KJV) 

"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? " 
(Job 38:31 KJV) 

"Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name: " 
(Amos 5:8 KJV)










Orion — 

Hebrew
the fool”; 


in Job_38:31 he appears fettered with “bands.” 

The old legend represented this star as a hero, who presumptuously rebelled against God, and was therefore a fool,
Have u Ever Danced with The Devil in the Pale Moonlight,,,?
 and was chained in the sky as a punishment
for its rising is at the stormy period of the year. 

He is Nimrod 
(the exceedingly impious rebel
among the Assyrians; 
Orion among the Greeks. 

Sabaism 
(worship of the heavenly hosts) 
and hero-worship were blended in his person. 

He first subverted the patriarchal order of society by substituting a chieftainship  [ROYALTY] based on [right of] conquest 
(Gen_10:9Gen_10:10). 

(Jamieson, Fausset And Brown Commentary)



Enter FAUSTUS to conjure

  Faust.  
Now that the gloomy shadow of the earth

Longing to view Orion’s drizzling look,

Leaps from the antarctic world unto the sky,

And dims the welkin with her pitchy breath,
        
Faustus, begin thine incantations,

And try if devils will obey thy hest,

Seeing thou hast pray’d and sacrific’d to them.

Within this circle is Jehovah’s name,

Forward and backward anagrammatis’d,
        
The breviated names of holy saints,

Figures of every adjunct to the Heavens,

And characters of signs and erring 1 stars,

By which the spirits are enforc’d to rise:

Then fear not, Faustus, but be resolute,
   
And try the uttermost magic can perform.

In the Doctor Who New Adventures novel Love and War, the 25th century New Age Travellers have a trickster god they just call the Trickster (who doesn't appear to be related to The Sarah Jane Adventures character). 

During Jan's vision quest, he appears to Jan as "Arlan Jardolz, the Betalan comedian" and to Ace as Vic Reeves.





The Trickster - TV Tropes

Be careful, watch that last step!
Aelius: I think that if someone tried to rob you in the street, you'd pick his pocket, sell him a better knife and probably offer him a job as a tax collector.
Basso:
I choose to take that as a compliment.
A trickster is a character who plays tricks or otherwise disobeys normal rules and conventional behavior. The Trickster openly questions and mocks authority, encourages impulse and enthusiasm, seeks out new ideas and experiences, destroys convention and complacency, and promotes chaos and unrest. At the same time, the trickster brings new knowledge, wisdom and many

the rules in the process of breaking them, much like an act of "civil disobedience".
Tricksters can be cunning or foolish or both; they are often funny even when considered sacred or performing important cultural tasks. Even if not otherwise punished, they are often prone to

The Trickster God - TV Tropes

The Trickster figure is deeply rooted in the folklore and mythology of every culture; a cosmic jester, a wise fool, a mysterious, mischievous creature, fun-loving and rebellious, and unconstrained by the laws which bound normal men. Sound familiar?
